1st Sunday of Lent

Posted on

Originally delivered on February 17, 1991

Readings: Genesis 9:8-15; Peter 3:18-22; Mark 1:12-15

In today’s first reading from Genesis, we hear that God gave us the rainbow as a sign that God would never again flood the earth.  Fr. Healy suggests that the story of Noah gives us the message that no matter how terrible things may be, there will always be a new day, filled with new possibilities when God will triumph and will not fade away.  Indeed, God’s light will dispel all of the darkness. Those who believe, have the gift of faith, which will see them through the dark times. However, we must also be that hope for our sisters and brothers in need.  We must reach out, care for, and attend to all of God’s creation.
